    various. Depends on how far out they are and how active. I'll normally start real big (up to 3/4 oz) to cover as much water as possible, seeing if I can get things started -- then reduce the size from there (lakefront). I normally end up in the 2/5ths oz area, but will go smaller if they're in close. In the rivers, I'll start smaller since the casts don't have to go as far. I seem to use 1/4oz in the river, if not smaller.

    The best selection of cleos that I have seen is at the bait shop near Ladue (north of 422 on 44). He has colors and sizes that I haven't seen elsewhere, including the internet. I also picked up a bunch on ebay last year, at less than 50 cents a piece.
     

  3. I am a fan of the 1/4 ounce K.O. Wobbler and a #1 Vibrax spinner. They've always seem to produce fish for me...
     
  4. thanks for the info..
    when we go up we fish the dam and fight with the Russians. :rolleyes:

    Little Cleo's are my favorite for many species and i have a ton of them in many colors and sizes.
    Im thinking of hitting the run up there too, anyone want to give a "rookie" and info. to help me get on fish? Also im a CATCH-PHOTO-RELEASE angler, so no worries about me taking fish home and hurting anyones spot.
